“One of the few places to really learn about series.”
David Csicskar, writer, TV Launch 2021 alumnus

 

Previously known as TV Launch, Series Launch is a residential "idea-to-market” training program for drama series, targeting and tailoring its content primarily for emerging professionals coming from the Central and Eastern European region (detailed eligibility info here).

Series Launch / Project Development

The program accepts both limited or ongoing long form series. The 9 selected projects go through an intensive 4-module program and are built from the “bottom-up”: the training focuses on defining the series concept and theme, completing the pilot, creating season arc, season outlines, pitching documents and a financing strategy. 

 

Series Launch / Development Executive Training
The development process that the Series Launch projects go through is used as a platform to train three attending development executive participants, who will be trained for their future role of commissioning editors or heads of development on real, existing series projects, acquiring skills needed for developing a diverse range of projects.

The projects as well as development executive participants will be pitched within the showcase in Tallinn, Estonia within Industry@Tallinn & Baltic Event

MIDPOINT Series Launch is realized with the support of the Creative Europe – MEDIA programme of the European Union.
